Jimmies headed back to second round
March 07, 2013
Jamestown (27-5) held the advantage most of the way, taking a 37-29 halftime lead prior to extending the margin into double digits in the second half. The Jimmies did so in large part due to their 44.6 percent shooting compared to 34.9 percent for the Oaks. That difference helped Jamestown grow its lead as large as 18 points late in the game.
While she scored only four points, Jamestown's Amber Ramlo had her way on the boards as she pulled down a game-high 13 rebounds to enable the Jimmies to a 42-37 advantage in the rebound category.
Kayla Roemmich was Jamestown's only other double-figure scorer as she came in with 10 points. A trio of Jimmies dished out four assists apiece: Chesley Frydenlund, Maggie Seter and Hannah Steele.
The Oaks were led by Lauren Adamek's game high 21 points (9-for-18 shooting). Laurel Donnenwirth fell just short of a double-double with eight points and 11 rebounds.
Menlo finishes its season at 26-4 overall, including a perfect 10-0 league mark in the California Pacific Conference. The Oaks fell to 1-5 in their five all-time appearances at the national championships - four of which have come since 2006.
Jamestown has advanced to the second round for the second-straight year and for the third time in school history. The Jimmies will take on top-seeded Eastern Oregon at 1:45 p.m. on Friday.
